In a video posted to YouTube on Sunday, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced her official run for president in 2016.
“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” Clinton said in the video. “Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.”

An e-mail sent to supporters and donors by top aide John Podesta also confirmed Clinton was entering the race. In it, Podesta described an upcoming “kickoff event” next month.
